The Thrill of a Lifetime
Whale Watching In Virginia Beach

  • Catch a glimpse of something amazing.

    Like all the wildlife that make the cooler season so special, whales here are not just a fluke. Virginia Beach waters are frequently visited by Atlantic whales, and sightings have been a regular occurrence in recent years. As they migrate between Greenland and the Caribbean, humpback, fin and minke whales love to linger where the food-rich mouth of the Chesapeake Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean, providing a dramatic show for Virginia Beach whale watching tours. They join brown pelicans, double-crested cormorants, other waterfowl and creatures of the sea to make Winter Wildlife Boat Trips the thing to do on a brisk winter’s day.

  • Winter Wildlife Boat Trips

    January – March

    Take to the seas for a two-hour adventure in search of all things winged, finned and winter-wonderful. Virginia Beach’s food-rich waters attract all kinds of seabirds and even the occasional migrating whale close to our shores in cooler months, making Winter Wildlife Boat Trips exciting outings to share with family and friends.
